Furman v. Call

In Furman v. Call, 234 Va. 437, 439, 362 S.E.2d 709, 710 (1987), the Supreme Court of Virginia considered the question again in a case involving an office complex parking lot where privately owned roads in and surrounding a parking area "have always been open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week" and "access by the public has never been denied by guards, gates, or any other device." 234 Va. at 440-41, 362 S.E.2d at 711. The Furman Court found that even though the lot was posted with signs stating "Private Property, No Soliciting," the lot was a highway within the statutory definition because public access was "full and unrestricted." See id. at 441, 362 S.E.2d at 711.
